Flashmob dancers put on a show in Leicester city centre
Young dancers and designers took their art onto the streets of Leicester city centre yesterday.
A group of eight entertained shoppers in Leicester with surprise "flash mob" dance performances inspired by a forthcoming exhibition at the city's New Walk Museum.
The youngsters, aged between 13 and 15, have been participating in a series of free dance and costume design workshops at the museum, taking inspiration from Suits and Saris, which opens at the museum on Saturday.
The group performed its synchronised street performances at the Clock Tower, and in Gallowtree Gate and Market Street in the afternoon as part of their workshop studies.
Hannah Stretton, manager of the project, funded by Arts Council England, said: "It's fantastic to see a group of young people so invested in and excited by this museum's project."
The entertainment was provided by the Dohl Enforcement Agency - the D-E-A Band with costumes by Ali Pretty of Kinetika and the choreography was by Balbir Singh.
